The Annual Car Rally began in 1990 when a group of dedicated volunteers decided they wanted to start a charity event to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish® Foundation of Canada.
Thank you for supporting this year’s Car Rally and for helping to grant more wishes!
Now in it’s 31st year, run by the same group of dedicated volunteers, this event continues to run in order to raise money to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.

This year is going back to normal – at least hope and pray! We have secured our government regulated and COVID safe venue and format. The health and safety of all Make-A-Wish constituents, including our wish families, partners and supporters like YOU is our priority. This year, the Car Rally will follow guidelines and recommendations from national and local public health and government organizations to ensure that proper social distancing measures are in full effect.
As of August 12, 2021, the Covid rules are:
Please note that occupancy capacity for the venue gets reduced another 25% with a dance which is why we have opted out of that part of the event for this year unless it changes prior to our event.
We know so many of you are just waiting to get out and be able to socialize and we are looking forward to a wonderful event, however, we do ask for your patience and understand that we must follow all government rules.
Sign up quickly as it will be first come first serve. We are starting with 200 people and we will adjust as we can per re-opening rules.
Registration ends at 5pm on October 13,2021
We have two options for you!
OPTION ONE ($375.00 per couple)
OPTION TWO ($50.00 per person)
SILENT AUCTION: Please donate an item for the silent auction table, particularly if you are unable to get pledges. To ensure a successful auction, please contribute an item that someone would want to receive e.g. as a holiday gift or just because. This is a great time to Christmas and holiday shop!! A Silent Auction form is provided below. Please complete as much of it in advance so that it is quick and easy to submit your item and the form to Rally organizers on the morning of October 23rd at the start of the rally. One form per item (single or multiple pieces) please.
SPONSORS: If you know of a company that wants to sponsor the event e.g. a section of the rally, the dinner or breakfast, please let Debbie know at the email shared below. Click here for the sponsor form.
Last year we were so fortunate to raise $39,415 with a very different venue and to get to our previous goal of a million dollars in 30 years, maybe this year, we will do it as I know we have great support from all of you and supporters of the car rally over the last 30 years.
On behalf of Make-A-Wish, myself and all our committed volunteers, we look forward to seeing you on October 23rd.
Take care and be safe.
